Additional Housing Options

The Office of Residence Life & Housing seeks to ensure students in all residential facilities a safe, comfortable and dignified living experience.

Medically Related Needs
Emory University is committed to making University housing accessible to all students. To that end, we have accessible rooms for students with disabilities.  These rooms are distributed throughout the campus and may change from year to year. In addition, the University has wheelchair accessible shuttles to service the campus.  Please note: Housing does not provide accommodations for Learning Disabilities. If you have a disability that may require special assignment or accommodations, you must contact and register with the Office of Access, Disability Services and Resources (ADSR). Accommodations will be approved, as appropriate,  based on receipt of documentation as outlined by ADSR.

Housing accommodation assignments are made on a case-by-case basis that recognizes the variability of individual needs and preferences and the fact that appropriate accommodations may be limited in number. As for all applicants for housing, no guarantee can be made that all stated preferences can be met. For full consideration, requests should be made at the start of any application period.

The ADSR office is located at 110 Administration Building. The phone number is 404.727.9877 and the TDD is 404.712.2049. Additional consultation may take place with the Emory Counseling Center and/or the Emory Student Health Center.

Students who are registered with ADSR will be contacted individually via email regarding procedures for securing housing during the room selection process.

Gender-Inclusive Housing
The Office of Residence Life and Housing wants every student to have a meaningful and enjoyable residential experience where they are safe and comfortable, recognizing the rights and opportunities of all residents. To this end, we provide the opportunity for students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender or have a preference to live with a student of a different biological sex or gender (as recorded with the university) to live as roommates. Students may select a roommate of any sex or gender and request an assignment in suite-style or apartment-style housing. This housing is not guaranteed.

If a student is not able to secure an appropriate assignment during an application or selection process, assignments may be made on a case-by-case basis that recognizes the variability of individual needs and preferences and the fact that appropriate accommodations may be limited in number. As for all applicants for housing, no guarantee can be made that all stated preferences can be met. For full consideration, requests should be made at the start of any application period.

Prospective or current students who are interested in gender inclusive housing are asked to contact one of the following staff members to discuss housing options available:

Joni Tyson | jtyson@emory.edu
Countess Hughes | chughe4@emory.edu

 

Married/Same-Sex Partners

Undergraduate Married students/Same-sex Partners (couples) are permitted to reside in student housing provided that at least one spouse per couple is a full-time student at Emory and the other spouse/partner is either a full or part-time student at Emory. Both members of the couple must submit a housing application.

Couples are eligible for apartment style housing only. A copy of a marriage certificate must be provided at the time of application or completion of the Emory University Statement of Same-Sex Domestic Partnership registration form. No additional housing priority is provided for couples requesting housing.
 
First- or Second-year students who are couples may appeal to be released from the on campus requirement. Appeals to be released are not guaranteed.

 

Students with Dependents

Undergraduate housing at Emory University is designed with the purpose of housing enrolled students. Emory Housing is not able to accommodate family members, including minor children or other dependents.

First- or second-year students who have children or other dependents may appeal to be released from the on campus requirement. Appeals to be released are not guaranteed.
